Who We Are
The Internet Association of Australia works to create a better Internet for Australia.
Established in 1995 by a collection of Internet enthusiasts, our heritage is deep-seated in advocacy, and we continue to be an association that supports the needs and interests of our members.
We proudly operate Australia’s largest not-for-profit internet peering network comprising six exchange points and over 30 Points of Presence (PoPs) nationally. Since establishing WA-IX – our first exchange in 1997 – our network has grown significantly.
We exist for the benefit of the Internet and the people who build and operate it.
Building a Better Internet
At IAA, we strive to lead the Internet industry and support our members.
- Member-driven – member needs and interests guide our initiatives
- Not-for-profit – investing in initiatives that support and improve Australia’s Internet
- Carrier-Neutral – we provide impartial and equitable peering exchanges
Supporting our members is fundamental to our strategy. That’s why we grow partnerships and human networks, conduct various events and do our best to provide the resources that members need.
Through the combined efforts of our Association and its members, we can build a better Internet for Australia and beyond.
